Hello, helpful locals! :-) These forums are great! I'm posting this question here because the Cap Ferrat forum doesn't appear to be very active.
Rick Steves advises to "beg, borrow, or steal" ;-) a way to be in Cap Ferrat around sunset and have dinner there - at Restaurant de la Plage de Passable. As I'm not likely to ever be there again, I'd like to do that. Even though Rick is very good with practical info, he didn't mention anything about the options for returning to Nice later and I know the buses don't run late enough. Of course, a taxi is an obvious choice and I don't mind paying for it, but I just read on the Eze Village forum that there are a total of 2 (two) taxis in the village, so I'm afraid the situation may be the same in Cap Ferrat.
I remember reading somewhere that there is a train station in Beaulieu-sur-Mer. Based on Rick's explanation and the way I see it on the map, the walk from Plage de Passable to this train station shouldn't take more than 30 to 45 minutes. I don't plan to stay there too late - perhaps till 10 or 11 p.m. at the latest. I'd imagine a place as ritzy as Cap Ferrat must be safe enough, but I'm a woman traveling solo, so I was wondering if this road/path? is well lighted and if there are people walking it at this time of the evening.
I'd really appreciate it if someone lets me know if it's easy to get a taxi in the evening in Cap Ferrat and/or if walking to the train station in Beaulieu-sur-Mer is a feasible plan. Any other suggestions are welcome, too. As much as I'd like to spend the evening there, I don't really want to be stranded... There are only a few hotels and they may very well be booked or too expensive.
I can't wait to see these beautiful places! :-)
